South Park Reviews

I grew up in this neighborhood most of my life. The safety and relationship between law enforcement is very poor. Discrimination between residents and the police is very heavy. The education goals for the children is very low. There is a high crime rate, and the streets will send you car to a repair shop if you don't know how to avoid them. I would like to see my city focus more on helping better the education of low income students. I would also like to see the law enforcement take initiative to have a positive relationship with the residents. Most people live here because of financial hardships. I am wanting to better myself educationally so that I can help my community.

I would choose to live here again because simply because of the people that surround me. Although the area does have a high crime rate, myself and the people that live on the same street,have learned to care and look out for one another and their homes. I do hope to see more community work done to improve the area. Whether it be cleaning the community, more summer camps for kids, fixing the roads, the whole community coming as one and together making it a better living environment.
You are going to get SHOT at night! Don't go out at night, its dangerous. There are street dogs everywhere, people who drive without their car lights on, there are also lamp posts that don't work at night.
